Trim to visible content or Trim to selected content

Recommended Posts

Hi Devs,

I really wish there was a way that AD would trim the canvas to visible or selected content. I realize there is a workaround by 1) Copying selected layers and 2) File > New from Clipboard. But when working on a bunch of UI controls it gets VERY tedious to keep creating new docs just to trim to content. 

Thanks for listening. 

 

Cheers,

Andrew K

You an kind of work around this using artboards:

Select the artboard tool, set the popup on the context toolbar to "Selection" and click "Insert Artboard".

That will give you an artboard perfectly matched to the selection.

Nice work around -- albeit a workaround... but it doesn't create a new document which is great!!

I will create a Keyboard Maestro macro to do that for me with 1 key command. 

Thanks fde101

For anyone else interested, a macro (using your favorite 3rd party key command macro app) works very well.

That said, Affinity should make this native without invoking Artboards. Please.
